This year's 11th annual "The One Motorcycle Show" was held at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon, for the first time. This is the first ever flat track race with dirt to be held in the stadium. Back in 1974, Evel Knievel did a jump here. It's an amazing venue with a lot of history. My last visit to the VMC was for an AMA Pro Arenacross race in 2018. Last time I raced in the VMC myself was back in the beginning of the 2000's at an amateur day following one of the Arenacross races.
Having the show and the race together in one venue for the first time was nothing short epic! As a racer, it has been hard to enjoy much of the show previous years, being that the races were previously an hour away in Salem. So this year, I got to hang out and take in the show all 3 days in addition to racing Saturday! It was fun clanking around in my steel shoe through the VMC on Saturday and getting to socialize with all the attendees.
